Opportunities Credit Union Gallery
Curator Talk, Artist Reception, & Catalog Release
Thursday, July 19th, 6PM
Curated by Amy Rahn, “Open House” is an art exhibition that explores “home” as a concept detached from the familiar architecture of the house. Artists Angelo Arnold, Kate Brandt, and Mary Zompetti each approach the meaning of “home” from richly varied perspectives. Arnold’s “familiarture” upholstered sculptures, Brandt’s insightful, darkly humorous video works, and Zompetti’s ephemeral, meditative photographic works re-interpret the space and essence of “house” and “home”, grounding the viewer in a contemplative space. Here, viewers are invited to see “home” as a concept open to interpretation, and a space open to exploration.
